LILO does allow you to have /boot on a RAID-1 partition.  It also allows you 
to install it's boot block on the boot sector of that partition (however I 
would not recommend that until the next major release of LILO comes out which 
does it differently).

I've got several machines with /boot on RAID-1 and it boots fine with LILO.

LILO has no support for RAID-1 or RAID-0 (and no support is planned).
